Eminent Domain

LCRA is planning to bring high power transmission lines straight through our area. Clear View Alliance is fighting it.

Right now, they have several proposed routes, one of which is right across the front of our property. They won't let the general public know which route they have chosen until the end of October.

If they do choose 479 then we will lose everything. It is not safe to live close to these power lines, and since our property is so small, there is no way we could get far enough away. Our house would be unliveable. They are supposed to offer "fair compensation" but in reality what generally happens is that if you dont accept their "fair" offer, you will find your property condemned.
